Group E – 21:00 CET
Just the small matter of who will go through as group winners in regards to this one.
It’s back to the drawing board for AEK Athens who currently sit on 0 points, meaning Benfica’s 4 points will see them enter the Europa League knockout stages.
More on what matters, Bayern Munich (13 points) travel to the Amsterdam Arena to face Ajax (11 points).
The Dutch side needs a win to progress as group winners, and you know what? We think they may just be able to pull it off!

Group F – 21:00 CET
There’s plenty to play for in this Group as we head into the final round of Group Stage matches.
Let’s clear a few things up: Manchester City have qualified and need just a point against Hoffenheim to go through as winners. Hoffenheim cannot qualify for the knockouts but can still finish third if they beat City, and if Shakhtar Donetsk loses to Lyon.
Given that Pep Guardiola’s “B Team” could probably challenge for the title in pretty much any league, we doubt the rotations will have much effect on the game. City should win, meaning a showdown for second place over in the Ukraine where Lyon plays Shakhtar.
Lyon’s four draws on-the-hop doesn’t make for great reading, but they have scored nine goals in total during those four matches, so they know how to find the back of the net.

was 2.30 – NOW 2.60
Lyon to win & Over 2.5 goals
was 3.80 – NOW 4.20
Group G – 18:55 CET
These lot kick-off in the early matches of the day, which is great news because this group is pretty much all done and dusted.
Real Madrid have qualified as group winners with Roma going through in second place.
The remaining two, Viktoria Plzen and CSKA Moscow, both sit on 4 points and both play the top two.
There could be some value in the Russian side should you fancy a cheeky punt before the later games: CSKA beat Real Madrid back in Moscow for the reverse fixture but backing them to go to the Bernabeu and win is a different kettle of fish.
Group H – 18:55 CET
This is another group that won’t be grabbing many people’s attention ahead of the last round of group stage matches.
Juventus and Manchester United are through to the next phase, and Valencia are through to the Europa League knockouts.
Juventus travel to Swiss-side Young Boys in need of a win to secure top spot and will be pretty cheesed off if they come away with anything less.
United play Valencia in Spain and you don’t need to be Nostradamus to guess that Mourinho will field a weakened side.
This does open up the possibility for some value in Valencia, so let’s give them a boost.
